Escatawpa Hollow Park & Campground is closed for construction beginning April 14, 2021 and will be closed until renovations are complete.

Renovations include restrooms, pavilions, RV sites, infrastructure like roadwork, water access points and trails as well as a welcome center with café, a general store and a Black Water River System interpretive center.
Once renovations are complete, Escatawpa Hollow Park and Campground will increase public access to the Escatawpa River through more than 100 acres of park that includes about 1 mile of shoreline. The Escatawpa River forms a portion of the border between Alabama and Mississippi. It flows north-south and is navigable through Mobile County, Alabama.
Park acquisition, expansion and renovation is made possible through funding generated by the Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act (GOMESA). Part of the local conservation plan for GOMESA funds is to increase public access to shoreline recreational areas, such as along the Escatawpa River.
Escatawpa Hollow Park & Campground was purchased in 2019 by the Mobile County Commission. Master planning occurred through 2020. Park expansion and renovation is spearheaded by District 2 Commissioner Connie Hudson.
